WiLAN Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Company reports third straight quarter of adjusted earnings exceeding $16 million

OTTAWA, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- Wi-LAN Inc. ("WiLAN" or the "Company") (TSX: WIN)(NASDAQ: WILN) today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 ended June 30, 2014. All financial information in this press release is reported in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

Second Quarter 2014 Highlights


--  Revenues of $25.7 million, exceeding guidance of $19.4 million by 32%.
--  Adjusted earnings(i) of $16.6 million, or 14 cents per basic share,
    exceeding guidance of between $9.4 million and $10.5 million by nearly
    60%.
--  GAAP earnings of $5.6 million or 5 cents per basic share.
--  Announced 25% increase to quarterly dividend.
--  Signed license agreements for wireless technology with Nokia Networks
    and Archos S.A.
--  Entered license agreement with Sony Corporation related to television
    technology.
--  Secured license agreements for network management technology with two
    U.S. wireless carriers.
--  Signed significant partnership with industry leading memory company.
--  Diversified business with licensing partnerships in the automotive, data
    networking, irrigation and medical technology markets.
--  U.S. Patent Office and U.S. District Court confirm validity of WiLAN's
    802 patent, which was at issue in the Apple case.
--  Returned $4.3 million to shareholders in dividend payments.

"In the second quarter, we made significant progress in our ongoing efforts to increase the profitability and diversification of our business," said Jim Skippen, President & CEO. "Strong revenues, driven in part by signed license agreements with Nokia Networks and Sony, and the control of litigation expenses, contributed to the third straight quarter of positive GAAP earnings and adjusted earnings exceeding 55 percent of revenue."

Added Skippen, "Licensing partnerships signed recently have established WiLAN in many new markets including the automotive, data networking, medical and semiconductor markets. In particular, we are very excited about the quality and value of a patent portfolio that a WiLAN subsidiary acquired from an industry leading memory company in the second quarter. We are very pleased that the U.S. Patent Office, after conducting reexam proceedings at the urging of certain defendants in our cases, has confirmed the validity of WiLAN's 802 patent. The 802 patent was filed by the founders of WiLAN and has been licensed to many parties."

Eligible Dividend

The Board of Directors has declared an eligible dividend of CDN $0.05 per common share to be paid on October 3, 2014 to shareholders of record on September 12, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Revenue Review

In the three month period ended June 30, 2014, WiLAN generated revenues of $25.7 million, as compared to $19.9 million in the three month period ended June 30, 2013. The increase in revenues is primarily attributable to the timing of fixed-payment amounts as a result of the significant license agreements signed during the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 and the six months ended June 30, 2014 for which certain agreements contained higher fixed-payments at the beginning of the license agreement.

Second Quarter 2014 Operating Expense Review

In the three month period ended June 30, 2014, cost of revenue totaled $14.5 million as compared to $24.2 million in the comparative period. The decrease in expenses is primarily attributable to a decrease in litigation expense partially offset by an increase in amortization expense and patent maintenance, prosecution, and evaluation expenses as a result of patent acquisitions completed during fiscal 2013, and compensation and benefits as a result of increased staffing levels.

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, litigation expenses amounted to $1.7 million compared to $14.5 million for the same period last year. This decrease in comparison to the same period last year is largely attributable to a decrease in the level of litigation activities and new shared risk fee arrangements entered into with our external counsel. Litigation expenses are expected to vary from period to period due to the variability of litigation activities and any contingent payments that may be required from licenses signed in any particular quarter.

In the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, MG&A expenses amounted to $2.8 million as compared to $3.6 million in the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. The decrease in spending for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 is primarily attributable to a decrease in compensation and benefits and stock-based compensation as a result of changes in staffing levels.

Second Quarter 2014 Earnings Review

In the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, WiLAN generated adjusted earnings of $16.6 million or 14 cents per basic share as compared to a loss of $762,000 or 1 cent per basic share, in the comparative period. The increase in adjusted earnings for the second quarter of 2014 is primarily attributable to increased revenues and reduced litigation expenses.

The Company's GAAP earnings amounted to earnings of $5.6 million, or 5 cents per share on a basic level, in the second quarter 2014, as compared to a GAAP loss of $7.6 million, or 6 cents per share on a basic level, in the same period last year.

Second Quarter 2014 Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Review

At June 30, 2014, the Company's cash, comprised of cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, totaled $140.1 million, representing an increase of $8.2 million from the cash position at December 31, 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to $33.2 million of cash generated in operations partially offset by the payment of dividends totaling $8.8 million and payments related to patent acquisitions totaling $10.7 million. The Company's cash equivalents and short-term investments include T-bills, term deposits and GICs.

Third Quarter 2014 Financial Guidance

For the third quarter 2014 ending September 30, 2014, the Company expects revenue to be at least $19.7 million. This revenue guidance does not include the potential impact of any additional reports yet to be received, new agreements that may be signed during the balance of the third quarter of 2014 or the potential impact of any royalties identified in audits conducted by the Company. This guidance is provided prior to the completion of the first month of this fiscal quarter and as such, a number of reports that normally are submitted at or shortly after the month end have yet to be received by the Company.

Operating expenses for the third quarter are expected to be in the range of $9.7 million to $10.4 million of which $2.5 million to $3.2 million is expected to be litigation expense. For the third quarter of 2014, and assuming no additional agreements are signed, adjusted earnings are expected to be in the range of $9.4 million to $10.2 million.

The above statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. The "Forward- looking Information" section at the end of this press release provides information on various risks and uncertainties that the Company faces. Additional information identifying risks and uncertainties relating to the Company's business are discussed in greater detail in the "Risk Factors" section of WiLAN's annual information form for the 2013 fiscal year dated February 3, 2014 (copies of which may be obtained at www.sedar.com or www.sec.gov). Financial guidance is provided to assist investors and other interested parties in understanding WiLAN's performance. The reader is cautioned that using this information for any other purpose may be inappropriate.

The Company's revenues result primarily from the licensing of intellectual property which, by its very nature, is directly affected by the timing of the closure of license agreements, the nature and extent of specific licenses including actual rates, product sales by licensees which can be subject to seasonality as well as overall market demands and the timeliness of the receipt of licensee royalty reports. In addition, certain revenues may be of a one-time nature.

The above targets for the three month period ending September 30, 2014 reflect our current business indicators and expectations and are subject to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Due to their nature, certain income and expense items, such as significant license agreements with companies, brokerage opportunities, new litigation actions, contingent payments to licensing partners and litigation counsel that may be required from certain licenses signed in any particular quarter, losses on asset impairments or realized foreign exchange losses cannot be accurately forecast. Accordingly, we exclude forecasts of such items from our guidance. Actual revenues reported may exceed the revenue guidance provided due to the receipt of royalty reports, signing of new license agreements and completion of licensee audits, all after the guidance is provided. Actual expenses incurred may exceed the expense guidance provided due, in part, to contingent payments to licensing partners and litigation counsel that may be required from certain licenses signed during the quarter.

WiLAN's imperative is to negotiate the best possible license as measured over the long-term and accordingly, the timing of actual license signings may vary from that forecasted. Actual results may vary materially from the guidance provided as a consequence of the above noted factors.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
You have great SaaS business app ideas. You want to turn your idea quickly into a functional and engaging proof of concept.

How could you achieve all the above and yet avoid unforeseen IT requirements that add unnecessary cost and complexity? You also want your app to be responsive in any device at any time. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Allen, General Manager of...
SYS-CON Events has announced today that Roger Strukhoff has been named conference chair of Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo 2017 New York. The 20th Cloud Expo and 7th @ThingsExpo will take place on June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

"More importantly, it leverages the power of devices and the Internet to enable us all to im...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The 6th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.

Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enter...
"At ROHA we develop an app called Catcha. It was developed after we spent a year meeting with, talking to, interacting with senior citizens watching them use their smartphones and talking to them about how they use their smartphones so we could get to know their smartphone behavior," explained Dave Woods, Chief Innovation Officer at ROHA, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
